Welcome to Oxford Academic Health Partners website
Oxford Academic Health Partners is the new name for the NIHR Oxford Academic Health Science Centre recently designated following formal competition.

The OAHP is a true partnership covering Oxford and Oxfordshire but also reaching far beyond reflecting the excellence, strength and expertise of the Partners across the UK and the world. We aim to work together across a wide range of activities – research, education, healthcare and innovation with the overriding aim of improving the care of patients. It is very important to all our partners and collaborators that the work we support and promote can benefit the maximum number of patients in the population and have the maximum impact and benefit for the country as a whole. It is also the intention that investment can result from the activities and that again these benefits can spread far and wide.
We highlight the work of Partners through this site and also encourage and develop collaborations between and within Partners – recent examples include the Brain Health Centre, the development of Brainomix AI system throughout the Oxford AHSN, the development and roll out of Sleepio – work done by Oxford Health, the University of Oxford and the Oxford AHSN. OxINMAHR based at Oxford Brookes University is a further example of close collaboration between Partners under the auspices of the OAHP.
Do let us know of all and any examples so that we can showcase them. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The following are the Partners making up OAHP which also works closely with the Oxford Academic Health Science Network – Oxford AHSN
- Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust;
- Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust;
- Oxford Brookes University; and
- the University of Oxford
As shown above, the Oxford Academic Health Science Network is also a key partner, ensuring that OAHP’s work can be disseminated across the wider Region and working with the AHSN Network and other AHSCs, spreading across England and beyond.
More detailed information on the Board and Governance arrangements can be found here.
In addition, the Partners have established a Registered Charity, the Oxford Academic Health Partners, to support the community in the achievement of its aims and objectives. In particular, staff working within the OAHP will have an opportunity to apply for travel/study grants in support of their own learning objectives and in support of the goals of the OAHP. It is hope to introduce this early in 2021.
Our vision – addressing 21st century healthcare challenges by integrating Oxford’s world-class strength in basic sciences, translational research, education and clinical expertise.
